12:04 pm
explosion in days and surrounded by broken clothes she stayed in the last zone to help the wounded to wait this just standing tough thing and then suddenly it just faded it's not like i caught a fish just waiting for your body. like last bits in their eyes how do you know that gets smashed glass all over them the skin and everything this show patched up victims before giving its whole drinks as a nation which is never suffered at the hands of terrorists before he says norwegians just didn't know how to react. or launched from from course some of the buildings. also in the fish old things gaming yeah rolling all this man's wife suffered severe short when their windows were blown out by the last but he says they're lucky to be alone with his thoughts go out to the many young victims of the second attack i think about well there's
12:05 pm
a machine some. of the guys here. that. this is just the two atrocities produced many acts of heroism which is the dust settles on the world's worst mass shooting experts say there's also boise anger that the attacks were allowed to happen in the first place bangle truth or ignore dozens of hate messages from suspect. you haven't really been prepared for right wing extremism brave expressed fury at the government's open door policy on immigration it numerous blogs and twitter feeds and lists that the shootings may reflect a growing national look position to feel immigration policies the political establishment of norway are relatively well off people but they live in areas where there are simply no immigrants. there's a poor people in northern being pushed out of places they used to live live in and
12:06 pm
it's also their drugs that are in jeopardy muslims claim this disappointment that the killer turned out to be voids they want this guy to be muslim although muslim you know. it's for them it's a little bit strange because he's in the region so they talk too much about them under about us. it's not good norwegians are said to be fed up with their brand of what's been dubbed radical liberalism it's the country's multicultural policies that turn the government against his own playing the way the far right sentiment. ready to admit and there's a polite and respectful attitude towards that kind of thing and in mainstream media but the reality is that fifty percent of the generals are against multiculturalism as people here try to pick up the pieces and bring meaning to this twitter tiger
12:07 pm
already thing it will sell relations between communities some expect the crackdown by police on the e.u. growing for right movements while others fear this will only fuel resentment against europe's muslims victims are beginning to piece spoke together the shouts of lawyers but the experts warn this might not be the last such a time as outrage at the perceived failure of a multicultural society grows the new bush will see cause look well father son who knows the suspect personally told r.t. that he was shocked by the news but also as a place where radicalism is in the air. i could not imagine i'm not even do you imagine that you can do that and not have been brainwashed. he never came across as some kind of religious fanatic or anything i mean i knew that he was religious but it wasn't like prying to irk you or anyone saying you know he just i just.
12:08 pm
it was really just pretty much i would more describe. employee by spirit baby sometimes always. going to be angry that he would be the second person but they already. know not more than that i did not get a bit through ideological. bias conversation on the other hand do just have to look around. and like. all people who all have very radical religious views all the way ranging from white knuckling christian and then you have people who work with the left and obviously managed to find right wing groups so i'm not generally surprised that people find very very mighty so then throw us well it's basically like if you're poison which
12:09 pm
wrong way you want to. now the whole world is discussing what lies behind the atrocity and you can join the debate on our web site r t v dot com ed it's so far the majority think that sheer fanaticism is to blame well fewer people see the tension stemmed from multiculturalism they have eight percent believing the reason is global terrorism which penetrates everywhere and the rest say it's down to the failure of security forces a log on to argue dot com and have your say. and still ahead for you in the program nato begins to go over control of afghan provinces to local army forces but many question if they're really up to the job. plus we'll hear from campaigners against u.s. drone attacks in pakistan who want to far a lawsuit
12:10 pm
a former cia legal chief for approving attacks that killed hundreds of innocent people. greece let out a sigh of relief this week as after long talks leaders finally agreed on how to help the country avoid defaulting on its debts a lot this will now receive a new bailout worth an estimated one hundred and mine billion euros well the plan was agreed after greece approved a severe a sturdy measures sending thousands onto the streets in protest the rescue will also involve lowering interest rates on greek debt and extending the repayment period the package also doubles the time given to bankrupt poor should go and are led to pay back their own loans meanwhile spain which has the highest unemployment rate in the eurozone falseness are protesters converge on madrid on saturday they camped out in the city center after marching from across the country well for more on where the eurozone is headed we can now talk to financial analysts in most of
12:11 pm
the guys report here on our team max kaiser thank you very much for being on the program with us now the fact that a second bailout was given to greece does say something about what they think is the answer to the problems to do you agree that this is a right move for greece to save its economy and where does it stop will a third of fourth or even fifth bailout be needed. well what it does is it increases the amount of debt and increases the amount of debt in the eurozone it is greece of the amount of debt in greece so this is a plan cooked up by bankers do repackage research. that's what they do in a crowds out the real economy so if they think that this is going to help the economy grow their way to a position of paying off this debt or paying the interest on the debt that's not going to happen because by giving bankers more dead to control the productive part of the economy you are eliminating that part of the economy's ability to pay off this debt so the banking cancer is just becoming worse in the eurozone and worse in
12:12 pm
greece piers talking about the costs of a second bailout or so are you saying that there are absolutely no pros to giving greece a second bailout while it's going up the banks there are not bailing out the workers or the people who are on the ground so to speak and bailing out european banks they're bailing out wall street banks they're bailing out other banks and so doing they're increasing the debt load so it's making the situation much worse and they're crowding out any ability for the work workers in greece to generate enough income to pay off this debt this is consigning the population to debt service. ok let's look at what german chancellor angela merkel said well back in germany spain the bulk of the bailout now she commented saying that the euro is good for us and that europe without the euro is unthinkable is it i think of all. well it's great for germany because they now have all the pieces in place to
12:13 pm
reestablish what i would you know their say is a fourth reich they have the ability now to control the entire eurozone through the german banking system or reunify germany with purview over the entire european banking zone and they get to lord over the countries like greece portugal spain and this is great for germany as long as they keep the euro at a level that they want great for their export market doesn't help greece no because of health ireland you know does it help portugal absolutely not ok let's look quickly at what are the protests in spain for example a country and economy that said that was said as it's being too big to fail the unemployment is very high now we've seen violent rallies increase that didn't do anything to stop a steady measures how can ordinary people actually do anything here you said the second bailout does nothing for ordinary people will protesting be any help or are they just wasting their time. well let's let's keep in mind that whatever the bailout package is to help bail out banks will save two hundred ten billion euros
12:14 pm
for example it's still easy for these bankers driven by wall street bankers to create ten times that amount and derivative contracts and credit default swaps and make it part of the fault law because they are ability to create derivatives to game the system to remember the reason why greece is failing is because the banks are gaming the system and causing it to fail because they make more money on the insurance than they lose on the bonds it's all about gaming the system and this will continue whether spain and italy are big enough or the right size next for the banks on wall street in europe to purposely crash these economies to make money on the insurance will save my guess is absolutely yes ok now let's look across the atlantic to the u.s. now that the u.s. is having sources default if it doesn't racist debt ceiling by the second of august but we've seen or heard both democrats and republicans can't seem to agree we see block outs from their meeting so why are they keeping up with their political bickering if we can call it when the situation is so serious. well the republicans
12:15 pm
are they have a long history and they're deeply racist they don't like barack obama along racial lines and they're trying to commit a financial lynching and they want to make it look bad and to paint him as being ineffective out of the election it's as simple as that because on a technical basis the debt ceiling argument is meaningless the debt ceiling been green's twenty times in the past it's never caused any calamity whatsoever the republicans and now the rating agencies complicit as they were complicit in destroying the european economies now have them complicit in attacking the american economy by saying that debt ceiling is somehow part and parcel of america's credit rating or credit worthiness this is this is put together by the republican party as a personal attack racially motivated against barack obama look at the party who is in the party if you look at their history they're all racists ok well thank you
12:16 pm
very much for your analysis there rocks kaiser financial listen host of the kaiser report here on r.t. . well this week the phone hacking and police bribery scandal was taken to the british parliament rupert murdoch his son james and a former u.k. c.e.o. rebecca brooks were all grilled by british lawmakers for several hours well the trio say said they were deeply sorry for what happened whatever new allegations have emerged that the news international chairman james murdoch misled the m.p.c. by saying he was unaware of the true extent of illicit phone tapping by his company's reporters the murdoch's could now face legal challenges in the u.s. over claims the voice mails of nine eleven victims were also targeted meanwhile of britain's hacking scandal appears to be spreading beyond the murdoch empire with claims the sunday mirror tabloid also blogs celebrities voicemail messages bizarre to reports critics believe the issue is just the tip of the iceberg and society
12:17 pm
that no longer values individual privacy. as the scandal over phone hacking by the murdoch media empire rages on public and political theory has mainly focused on ruthless tabloids out of control prepared to invade people's private lives and even the dad to get the story but some say in this day and age the whole concept of privacy is falling apart and in the u.s. more rapidly than elsewhere every time you tap on your cell or click on google or use your meal service everybody's sort of just clicks through that you agree to our terms and conditions well those terms and conditions are very very heavily weighted against you and your privacy interests and we see breaches of privacy happen in regimes all across america all across the world really in every sector surveillance is rampant but really this is all a microcosm of the biggest surveille are all which is to say there's little

out loaded on his website has. john says his extraordinary abandonment of his own privacy stems from the ignorance of the authorities in the fear they decided well that guy looks a little different so he must be arab and if he's arab then he must have explosives everyone knows that that's a logical operation we we realize how ridiculous that logic sounds but when your country when your own country takes on as the basis for national policy. ignorance is the basis of national policy is a pretty scary situation. and that's how i got caught up for haasan privacy has become a rally of the past and he says he's not surprised that journalists or anyone else really would use the same surveillance tactics as the state in that sense it might be of no surprise that the chief architect of the putrid act the lawyer who put it together happens to be one of murdoch's hand-picked new score board directors you

12:25 pm
at least to get afghan face to the nato occupation that itself is now crumbling these armed attacks these assassination attempts are designed to create panic and i think in all likelihood they are creating panic within a very heart the foundation of the karzai government the u.s. is losing grown steadily it's spending one hundred twenty billion dollars a year that's an increasing amount from the treasury that's already drained based on huge budget deficits here the number of casualties on the afghan and american side is is increasing not decreasing and yet they're no closer to victory in fact they're losing control of the country and the government of a sponsor is is in fact in danger of crumbling i would say the u.s. isn't going to anything i think the u.s. is losing ground and spite of what david petraeus and the obama administration say this is a bad situation possibly a catastrophe for the united states. the u.s. has been carrying out unmanned drone strikes in pakistan for years but now one of
